FransDotir: Wow! I loved reading your description of the game. Brought back memories I had forgotten. I KNOW that's exactly how we played it. Amazing how such a structured roll play game spread over such a wide area. I wonder if you were in Michigan. That's where we played it. That part about playing the hands like a piano, I had totally forgotten that part. When you're nearing age 70, reminiscing is so special. I would think kids today would have a hard time relating to and playing this game, but we spent a lot of time with it back in the 40s or 50s.
